During development, cell-cell signaling allows cells to determine their position in the organism, to take on appropriate fates, and to form contacts with the correct partners. We are studying these processes using the visual system of the fruit fly Drosophila as our primary model. The repetitive, yet exquisitely organized structure of the Drosophila eye and the power of unbiased genetic screens have allowed us to uncover general mechanisms by which cells communicate.
